    TL;DR: I'm leaving for good because my life's just been massively ****ed over by an illness that put me in crushing medical debt, I need to spare my health and this community is the ****ing worst. I'll spare you the full rant.

    I haven't been an active member of the community here for a long time, but in case anyone remembers or would like to know, I'd like to announce my permanent departure from the forums. (The decision was made several months back, but I neglected to mention it until now.)

    The forum just no longer holds any appeal for me going forward. I've made some good memories and great friends here, but with the state of the forum right now, chances of that continuing to happen are low, so I no longer see any purpose to being here.

    So long, and good luck everyone!

    I wish I wasn't posting in this thread...

    Anyway life is being life, in other words really busy and annoying. I have to take a break from this and maybe D&D as a whole for a while. However I will probably be back, eventually.

    At least I had fun while I was here, see ya and have a good day (or night, morning, evening, or whenever)

    Sorry to see you go. I enjoyed the times we played together. I know when I go back and read the older threads, I will smile when I read something of yours, and remember you fondly.

    Thank you for the memories, and I hope that life treats you well.

    So I don't think it really still concerns anyone here but being that I haven't typed a thing on the playground in over a year I presume it's safe to say that I will not be coming back. Things have changed a lot for me and I associate this place with some fond memories, but when I look back on it all now (and I won't lie, I may just keep the account around to read old games from time to time) I mostly get mad at myself for the person that continues to reflect in them. To those with whom I shared my time here and to all else whom it may concern, goodbye and good luck in life always.

    Also, to you people from the woob hangout (You know who you are): I am sorry for what I put you through. It's been real.

    I'm not leaving permanently, just for a little while. I just found out my grandfather just died, and I'm taking a few weeks off from everything right now, no exceptions. Ill be back before you know it.

    It has been a long time coming, but Lexi, the loyal Henchpixie of the Playground is leaving. Maybe permanently, maybe she will return. She is not sure of the future. But for now, she just doesn't seem the have the same energy or joy she used to have for being a part of this wonderful forum.

    And it is a wonderful place. She has had many fond, loving memories here. She has met great friends, has moved outside of her comfort zone, and enjoyed life more because of the Playground forums, and the people within.

    But a lot of the people she knows and loves are either gone, or they don't frequent the same threads as her anymore. And this makes Lexi a sad pixie.

    So goodbye, Playground. May those who come here still, find the same joy and happiness that she has had. And long live GLoG.

    Hello, my friends on this site.

    I have had a lot of fun with the many discussions I have had with all of you on this site, but I will no longer be using it. The discussions, rants, arguments, jokes, memes, and roleplays we're all fun. However, due to my increasingly busy life and decreasing interest in it, I will no longer be posting. If you still want to talk to me, I will be checking my PMs for one more week. I can exchange contact info for social media or other forms of communication to talk. Goodbye everyone, stay safe out there.

    It's a spambot. It's been replying to random threads with stuff that might look legit, but is just random sentences that have nothing to do with the subject at hand.
    I assume that it was to build up its post count to be able to link stuff.

    I may have worded that poorly... she didn't die of hypothermia..that's what we saved her from 2 years ago.. She came to us infected with FeLV, which caused her lungs to fill with fluid, last week...that's why we had to put her to sleep.. it seemed the better alternative to autogenerated waterboarding.

    To be honest the latter disease sounds worse then just hypothermia, I believe you made the right choice.

    Exactly, even a little bit of love and care goes a long way towards making someone, in this case your cat, really happy.

    I really don't want to go. This forum has been my sanctuary for many years. I love the friends I met here and the experiences I've had.

    However I'm having trouble with an element of the UI triggering my mental health issues and logging into this site has been causing panic attacks. I was hoping with time I'd get used to the problem and it would cease to be a problem. However this hasn't been happening, so I think it's time to say goodbye. I'll miss the people here and the community. Thank you for all the years of fun and support.

    I just got a clear sign that I won't be able to keep using the forum the way I'd like, which is unfortunate, because from my standpoint, it's the only good way to be.

    Farewell, folks. There are good people here. Stay strong.

    I won't be around for a bit, no idea how long, but my PC needs repairs. Something is wrong with the battery or adapter, I don't know which, but something is wrong with the hardware from what I can tell since the problem persists after resetting the device. It's going to be shipped off for tech support to work on it and hopefully fix the problem. I say it might be a while because the issue seems to go off at random, and prior experiences with other technicians make it clear that they can fail like anyone else (sometimes over months, but I'm hoping that was a one-time thing and this is nothing like that).

    Best case scenario, I'll be back in a few days, worst case scenario, I'll be back whenever the problem is fixed/if I get a new laptop if this problem can't be resolved.

    And I'm back it seems. All it took was two weeks lol.
